Such a high point during this REU for my #DrawdownPennState Scholar Anna - she had the opportunity to interview @DrKWilkinson from @ProjectDrawdown! Stay tuned for Anna’s podcast series on Drawdown solutions in Pennsylvania. cc @pennstateengineering #UndergraduateResearch #DrawdownScholar #DrawdownBrandywine (thanks to @vairolibrarypsu and @psumediacommons for the recording space!)
Fabrics have been selected for my next #quilting project! Hope to have this one finished in two weeks - shouldn’t be a problem, as long as I stick to these #fabrics and stop swapping them out! Cutting starts tomorrow! I hope people will be surprised with the final outcome of this one... not a coastal optimism quilt this time, but still connects to Earth Science. Fabrics from @joann_stores and @spoonflower #quiltingproject
We have moved into the whiteboard stage of planning the first podcast that #DrawdownScholar Anna will produce! We were able to complete two interviews with coastal/marine scientists yesterday, so we re-listened to those recorded files to map out which audio pieces she'll highlight (the COMPASS Message Box has been very helpful with this stage). As The Ocean is the newest @ProjectDrawdown sector, there isn't much information online highlighting the solutions. But when you speak to marine scientists - wow, you'll hear more than you expected about the ocean and why it matters when addressing global warming! Anna starts recording her narration next week, and fingers-crossed, we'll have our first edited version of the first podcast ready to test with listeners (the amazing faculty/staff of @vairolibrarypsu)! #DrawdownPennState #DrawdownBrandywine #UndergraduateResearch @pennstateengineering
Summer undergraduate research provides mentor and mentee several opportunities to celebrate successes and milestones during the research process. Today, @PSUBrandywine #DrawdownScholar Anna recorded her first two scientist interviews for her podcast series (yay!). Yet I brought in the cupcakes today not only to celebrate the professional but also the personal accomplishments she has completed already with the #DrawdownPennState REU program - and we're just wrapping up Week 2! #DrawdownBrandywine #UndergraduateResearch @pennstateengineering #cupcakes #cupcakesofinstagram #instacupcakes
With the door closed, some students on campus think this is a telephone booth! Actually, it is one of the great gems in the @psubrandywine @vairolibrarypsu @psumediacommons - the Whisper Booth! Brandywine’s @ProjectDrawdown Scholar Anna is going to be recording her audio narratives for her podcasts in this space (fortunately, she is not claustrophobic!) #DrawdownScholar #DrawdownPennState #DrawdownBrandywine @psutlt #UndergraduateResearch @pennstateengineering
